2019 has been a record year for Methodist conferences in Missouri! July 10-14 United Methodist Discipleship Ministries hosted its quadrennial national youth conference, Youth2019, in Kansas City. The theme was Love Well. This event started in 1988. Youth and their leaders from all over the country turned out for four days of worship, discipleship, Bible study, service opportunities and fun. Three hundred Missouri students and leaders attended.
In the exhibition hall, Missouri’s NextGen Ministries made a big impression with its inflatable obstacle course. Youth from all over the country enjoyed burning off some energy and racing their friends on the inflatable. Bishop Bob Farr hosted an ice cream social to greet and meet with Missouri youth. It was a jam-packed weekend full of learning, new friends and fun!
